St. Stanislaus junior offensive tackle Ryan Gibson was offered a scholarship by Louisiana Tech.
The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Gibson is the first Coast player from the Class of 2014 to land a scholarship.
"It feels good," Gibson said. "I've been working my butt off with the chance to play college football."
Gibson and his Rockachaws travel to Poplarville on Friday night for a huge Region 8-4A title game at Hornets Stadium.
